And now lower the bed back down. Ask your wife. I'm sure she is the bed maker.
We have one in a Hurricane 34E. Wife can get fitted sheet on top by herself but if I see her we work both sides at a time. In ours bed is on rear side w head against wall and slide side walls against both sides about 2 feet. We can w one hand raise top of bed up about a foot or so and put corner on. BUT, you mention frame and yes it is the piece again wall. But our mattress cover is zip up and encloses frame and mattress entirely also.
Process is a bit tedious but ours can be done. We like the bed. And as mentioned our touches other wall when side is closed, but we do not have to let down to close. It pushes a little but not hard enough to hurt anything. Before closing I always push whole mattress to top of bed to wall before closing. Thx Dennis.
